<&8.k,vr u.s. attorney melinda haigh for that wonderful introduction and richard carranza and mr. hirsch, but the no. 1 thing we care about you, we care about and your future and where you are going. when you get out of school being san franciscoans we'll have the best jobs in the world waiting for you. everyone one of you, how about that for san francisco? [ applause ] all right. well, let me start out by saying we're here in herbs theater. you have to know this is a special place. this is an historic landmark events place in san francisco. in 1945 the united nations charter was signed right here where you are sitting. it's the site where mayors like myself and others have addressed the annual state of the city address and it's a landmark place and that is why we choose to be here today with you. because we're making a big landmark to be antibullying across the country and we're launching it right here in san francisco with all of you. that is how important this is. and it's important also that the city family come together. we have quite a number of great starts stars that i have bee
members from the u.s. marine corps, 20 members from the u.s. navy, 10 members the u.s. coast guard, where we will then partner with them and cross train them and use our techniques, reaching technical rescue and high and low rescue being demonstrated in display. we will also be having some of our u.s. navy personnel on ride-alongs with members on our ambulances, fire engines and trucks to continue with our cross training. so, it gives me great pride to be here to continue to serve as the fire chief, to welcome the military, and to say thank you to all of you. here's to an enjoyable fun-filled busy weekend. all the best, and thank you for your service. (applause) >> i wanted chief to tell you about that training. we first did it in 2010, search and rescue which we knew was a problem in haiti in the earth wake in the recovery. and like they say in san francisco, the fire department, we know how to do it, but when the big earthquake hits, we're all going to be victims and we want to make sure that anybody that potentially could come in to help dig us out knows how to do it. well, we trained
of u.s. concrete, inc.. >> madam president, commissioners, [speaker not understood]. item 9d is a consent to transfer to port leases in which bode gravel company is the current port tenant. lease no. l-12507 and premises at seawall, 344. as you well know, the gravel company is an iconic number in san francisco. bode has been here since 1915 and waterfront for 10 year. the business is a production and distribution of ready mix concrete and other construction material to the local construction industry. it is sad for me to now say that the owners of bode now desire to sell their interest in bode and bode concrete llc to central concrete supply company, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of u.s. concrete. under the terms of the aforementioned leases, 50% or greater interest in the tenant. in this particular case, the owners of bode will be transferring 100% of their equity interest to central and as such the train action requires consent from the port commission. port staff has completed its due diligence regarding the transaction and operations of both central and u.s. concrete

isolated is what many criminals do. >> another thing is, a serious lack of knowledge in the u.s. criminal justice system. they don't know how to follow this system. sometimes the victim believe if i make a report to the police all my lost property will be recovered and then i get paid back. that is not true. a long, legal process. sometime they get frustrated. they don't go to police. there is also a cultural thing as they feel ashamed. some don't even want to tell their family because being a senior in the family and you get cheated, it is a very disgraceful kind of thing in a family so they try to hide and not coming forth to report. luckily because people come out a lot of reports are made but i believe there are lots of unreported cases. >> thank you, mr. chen. supervisor olague? >> we have worked with s.a.f.e. on a lot of issues. i'm grateful for what you do. i haven't heard anything from constituents from districts. but there is a large senior population. many from here. i will check in with the senior sensors and work with you. >> actually, kimochi. >> i will check in with kimochi

the u.s. government opened up weather data. and not only did it have profound effect on public safety when there are storms coming and agriculture and some of the others, it just provides and helped the quality of life in a profound way, the global positioning system and... almost every night created, 100,000 in economic value. incredible opportunities for doing this in job creation and safety and quality of life and really improving the lives of americans. so it did develop the strategies of 30-plus page document to the agencies of government that they have to work up the data and they have to make this stuff available in the way that we collect it, and use it and public information should remain public and we are going to drive that forward. >> there are a lot of things in the strategy around and the use of mobile government and how we summarize the... and think about the 21st century government in that way. and the policy that launched a couple of weeks ago and so much more is being formed that i think will be very transformational in the years to come. >> wh, digital gov in the do

, the broader u.s. economy does move forward? if we can get the u.s. economy out of second gear, we have seen the broader housing market turn and we're beginning to see the foundations of some job-growth. if the economy can pick up more broadly, what that would mean for san francisco, given the foundation that we have set for us today? clearly looking forward we think the physical boundaries of what is downtown will change. the type of space the tenants want will change. we think that this is a very good time for san francisco. we live in an exceptional time. and i'm going to paraphrase ever so slightly, but as jerry speyer would say, don't screw it up.
